Aisatsu

This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

Common Kingfisher, カワセミ

Now is the time that young birds have to learn to find food by themselves. For Kingfishers, who eat small fish and shrimps this can be a real challenge. Many chicks don't make it. They can't swim well yet and they drown, or don't catch enough to live on. Let's keep our fingers cross for these ones. The heatwave must affect them as well








How to eat shrimps Japanese style: First catch one


Pray


Go!


Ah well... Try again


and again

Get angry


Real angry (with yourself)




Contemplate...   Don't give up


Finally...!


And now?


Take it to a safe spot


And eat it









OK!

 

Then relax




Time for another one...
